Public Service Announcements


As a service to friends, I am pleased to present the following Public Service Announcements to the JBlogosphere:

1. A friend's son from Israel is now far, far away from home...in Honolulu. This guy's parents are happy that he found gainful employment, and he's working at a new kosher restaurant and deli. Fine deli sandwiches, steaks, burgers & fries, falafel and salads. Best knishes for thousands of miles in any direction. Take out or hang out in their lovely open air seating. Glatt kosher meat and poultry by the pound and kosher food on sale. Next time you visit Honolulu, don't forget to drop by Yudi's deli and say hi to "Yehuda Aryeh". You can tell him Jameel sent you, but he'll wonder who the heck you're talking about :)

Yudi's Deli
2740 East Manoa Road (next to Boston's Pizza in the old Shell station).
Honolulu, HI 96822
Phone 808 988-6700
Fax 808 988-4400
Call for easy directions from Waikiki or get a map.

Hours
Monday - Thursday 11am to 8pm
Friday 10am to 2pm
Sunday 11am to 6pm
Closed Shabbat

2. As always, the principle of "the poor of your city come first". And building up Eretz Yisrael should always take priority over the building up of Chutz LaAretz. That said, if Jews are in a city, then they should have a mikva. Got the following from the Jewish BlogMeister...
Help Build A Mikvah Please!

Boise, Idaho is a major city in America that is in great need of a mikvah! Here is an unusual mitzvah opportunity. Not only to help others become more religious but to be a part of growing the Jewish community there. I personally will be making a donation and I encourage all my fellow readers to donate whatever you can to this truly worthy cause. If you would like to spread the word in your community you can download information pamphlets here. To make a donation online please click here. If you prefer to mail your tax-deductible check, the address is:

Idaho Mikvah Fund
6114 n. Cape Arago Pl.
Boise, Idaho 83714
I'm not endorsing the mikva, because I have my own local tzedakot...but if you want a good cause, it looks like an important one.

Thats all for now. More stuff coming tomorrow. Good Stuff. You'll see!








Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Honolulu?
I knew I should have booked the flight to LA that goes through Hawaii. Oh well, next time. It's on the top of my list of holiday places to go (after Israel of course!)

Jameel, I am going to start a petition for you to finally update your blog's new look. You will fear me, if you are smart.
